The day after....


Wow, what's a girl to do after a day like that!?! A heartfelt thank you for all of your thoughtfulness and hard work on the May Day swap. For your kind comments and for posting on your blogs the amazing baskets that were created. This swap was truly outstanding. What a creative group of folks you are!!! I hope the rest of May proves to be as fabulous as it began:)


We're finally starting to get some color here in Minnesota. After some hard rain the other night the grass is green and the early spring flowers are starting to bloom. I've been enjoying carrying around my new, oh so springy bag from Michelle. She makes the cutest stuff! Check out her etsy shop here.




At the grocery store today I picked up a copy of the Better Homes and Gardens publication 100 ideas flea market style. Pretty cute stuff. Worth a peruse.


For those of you asking if and when I'll be hosting another swap, I think I'm going to take a break for a bit and work on some new things for my etsy shop. I have some ideas brewing. I'm sure I'll have another in the not-to-distant future. You'll hear all about it here...

Have a great day!!
